SONG OF ACHILLES

Wait wait
wait—so let 
me get this straight;

the whole stupid race—ain't even
quite
finished yet

when its 
oldest—and by 
far the most 

famous
strider—just face-
plants and 

gets disqualified?—Dang,
guess maybe it was just 
starting to look

too pretty?
too pretty—too
pretty tired—after

mile-
after-magnificant-
ly mucilaginous mile!

of strivin'
so hard—
to constantly keep all that 

goddamned and 
hot runny
calcium—ossified!
